About Lit

Lit is a composition of real time video and light for deceleration by Alexander Wendt. It is a black and white video with a chance soundtrack by Robert Curgenven and is 30 minutes long. 

Lit started from observations over a few years, out of a series of photographs capturing ephemera. Now the video investigates sustained impressions, suspended forms and shapes created by sunlight illuminating – part revealing, part disguising – the space the artist inhabited at the time.

Apart from lecturing at The Cass, Wendt has been creating narrative and non-narrative video as integral part of performance, installation, or for means of experimentation and research.  Lit was designed as a silent vehicle for the investigation of images and contributed non-sync sounds by Robert Curgenven and is Alexander Wendt's first long short.
